Portrait: lottery ticket seller

I never tire of saying I have a special affinity with the Vietnamese, especially the older ladies. I once taught English to refugee mothers at the Philippine Refugee Processing Center in Bataan when I was fresh out of college. Needless to say, they smothered me with affection. I will never forget their kindness and their ability to laugh despite their sad circumstances.
